An AMD better than a 4000+ but not over $300 I doubt exists. I certainly cannot find one. Now if you think you could go to Intel...

Ram: OCZ Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory 198.00

HardDrive: 200GB EIDE Western Digital Mode: WD2000BB, 7200 RPM, EIDE, 2MB cache , ATA/100 82.00

Good. Don't let our Intel Salesman, also known as Lord Kalthorn, disillusion you into going with Intel

Ok. SLI means that you can only get anything higher than a 6600 GT or above. I would highly reccommend 2 6800 GTs if you had the money. If you don't just get one and save up for the other one. Don't go with 2 6600 GTs because the total price is expensive for the performance they give out (2 6600 GTs in SLI are equivelent to a 6800 GT or Ultra). If you really want to go balls out, you can also go with 2 7800 GTXs in SLI...which should scream in games!

But you want to Multitask don't you? You can multitask so much more in an Intel Pentium 650 3.4Ghz say than you could in an AMD 4000+ And the Intel is less! Intel Pentium 650 3.4Ghz. Nobody is going to disagree when I say if you're not after a Gaming PC, that processor is better

I hope at least :P
